commander in chief, president barack obama. [applause] >> thank you. please be seated. in the years between the world wars, a young married couple in italy packed up what few belongings that they had and boarded a boat for a new world. they passed under the statute of liberty, and went through the lines of ellis island. carmelo and cramelina panetta had no money and spoke little english. but they had a dream of a better life. they worked hard. they went west to california. they started a family and taught their sons that if they studied and worked, if they gave back to this country, that they too could share in the american dream, so today we pay tribute to their son, leon panetta, a man who has not simply lived up to the american dream, but has helped to protect it for all of us. leon, our presence here today, members of congress, deputy secretary carter, general dempsy, and members of the joint chiefs, service secretaries, and the men and women of the greatest military that the world has ever known, all this is a reflection of our personal appreciation to you and the gratitude of a nation

that pushes a lot of people away even though we might share some ideas with that party. guest: thanks for the call. i think that is overstated in terms of what the caller said. but i think there's a point to it. i found the talk about president obama's birth certificate, where he was born, whether he was christian or muslim, i thought that was obnoxious and wrong on the merits and politically very damaging. i wrote a piece in the wall street journal a couple years ago taking on donald trump because he was doing footsy with the birth certificate. when republicans begin to play footsie with this kind if conspiracy. and things like that, it's problematic. more broadly, i do think there's a problem, and undeniable problem. even whether a person thinks there's merit, there is a problem republicans are not free to middle-class voters and is sending a signal to hispanic people, the single largest demographic in the country, that you are not particularly welcome in this party. what the republican party has to do is find a way to appeal to them that is consistent with its principles but is als
